AFSC’s Youth in Action (YIA) is a global network of youth leaders working together to strengthen their capacity to transform their respective communities.
Participants take part in youth-centered, experiential, and trauma-informed organizing trainings that analyze racism, colonialism, and imperialism locally and around the world. They create campaigns designed to dismantle systems of oppression while building infrastructures of liberation.
YIA participants serve as mentors and leaders to the next generation of social change agents in their local community.
Participants were nominated by AFSC staff in their local communities to YIA.
